Reflecting back on the past couple of weeks I got to thinking about when Mary got to the tomb of Jesus on the morning of his resurrection, the angles were waiting with a question: “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”
The question asked was as much for us today as it was for Mary then. Up to this point, the grave held all power and authority. But when God raised His son Jesus Christ from the dead, that power & authority was finally defeated.
This is true for many of us today. We look into the “Tomb” of our troubles, with the mindset of consenting to the authority of our defeat. Yet the words “He is not here, He has risen!” tell us this truth: That we need to stop bringing Jesus to the Authority of our problems and start bringing our problems to the Authority of Jesus. The life, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is not a child’s fable, it is our promise of victory over sin, death and the grave.
No matter how big your problem is, Jesus is the answer.
